A dental implant is a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. Your dentist places them directly into your jawbone, where they provide an artificial replacement for the root of your missing tooth or teeth. They can support crowns or dentures, in a similar way that roots support natural teeth. Having missing teeth can really knock your confidence, as well as affect the way you eat and speak. Dental implants offer a long-lasting and discreet choice of treatment for replacing teeth.
To stop your tooth from shifting into the empty space: When you lose a tooth, the surrounding tooth will eventually begin to move in order to fill into the space. This can cause several dental complications. Roughly spaced or densed tooth is harder to keep it clean and could cost you a fortune in orthodontic care. Placing a dental implant now, will keep your tooth properly spaced and make it easy to keep it clean.
To conserve your jawbone: If you choose the fixed bridge instead of getting a dental implant, your jawbone will eventually begin to decline underneath the missing tooth. This occurs because you don't receive adequate stimulation to the bone without a tooth root. The same situation occurs with dentures that are not implant-supported. If you ask yourself and wait to get a long time dental implants, the more time likely it is, that your jawbone may lack the integrity to get implants in the future without a dental bone graft.
An implant-supported dentures - Many people have a problem with their dentures. The problems are weak fit, sores in their mouths, sunken lips, and food restrictions. If you wear dentures, you can get a fixed and permanent solution with an implant-supported dentures. There are various procedures for dentures available and some even support a full arch of prosthetic teeth with as few as four implants
Preserve your appearance - When your jawbone begins to deteriorate because of missing teeth, it often causes your lips to appear sunken in. Unfortunately this situation can make you look years older than you are. This is the reason why people with dentures often complain of having thin lips and sunken cheeks. Dental implant posts provide the stimulation your body needs to produce dense, healthy jawbone material and keep your face looking full and youthful.
